Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter

Can someone please help. I purchased a new Lenovo G710 recently. All other laptops, mobiles etc in the house connect to 5g wireless except this one. Can the Lenovo G710 get 5g. All this b,g, and n wireless is a bit confusing.


Thanks in advance

Hi brummiearab1, welcome to the forum.  Smiley Happy


     I'm sorry to report that your card can only connect in the 2.4 GHz band. If you can set your card for the 40MHz bandwidth, the theoretical maximum data rate is 150 Mbps. Otherwise in the 20MHz bandwidth, 65 or 72.22 Mbps is normal. To connect to the 5 GHz band, the card must be rated as A/B/G/N, or AC.


     There are 4 cards in your HMM, and all 4 are only rated as 1x1 BGN. There are no cards that have 5 Ghz capability.

     Here is a support doc to help you understand the data rates:
